Add my review for Writing Secure Code (With CD-ROM)

Book description:

Security mistakes by software architects, designers, and developers are an ongoing plague that costs businesses millions of dollars every year when malicious intruders attack interconnected applications, steal credit-card numbers, and deface Web sites. WRITING SECURE CODE offers a ready cure. This fact-filled, eye-opening title covers the major aspects of creating secure applications through the entire development process, from secure design, to writing robust code that can easily withstand an attack, to testing applications for security vulnerabilities. Its short, easily-digested chapters can provide software designers, architects, developers, and testers with the training, theory, and techniques they need to take the right actions to ensure security. Topics it covers include security principles, how to design, code, and test for security, how to write secure managed code for Microsoft(r) .NET, why companies neglect security, the 10 immutable laws of security and security administration, and more. Developers who read this title will have the peace of mind that comes from knowing that the code they develop is not only fast, but secure. Both authors are top security experts at Microsoft who have helped solve some of the toughest security problems in the computing industry.
